(for: World Exclusive: Victoria Beckham Caught Smiling)

Could someone please explain to me the British people’s fascination with the Beckhams? He’s a not-that-great footballer who can barely speak English, she’s a failed popstar who couldn’t sing to begin with. Both would sell their mothers for yet another corporate sponsor. So why are you Brits so concerned with their lives? He slept with another woman, big freaking deal. Get over it.

You’d think we all that money she could shop anywhere for furniture. Instead she chooses MFI - http://www.spotonentertainment.co.uk/victor16.jpg

Darkblue you should run a caption compo. I’ve got another one:

“Christmas at Beckingham Palace was never the same after Posh became jealous of the tree…”

SexyGuy: I’m not a sociologist, so I’m ill-qualified to answer your question. But I suspect that the Beckham’s (previously) untarnished image was a large factor in their favour. Perhaps more significant is the complete lack of other British “heros” - who else can the masses look up to?

Nick: Great contribution to the thread, changing it’s context entirely! I quite like the idea of a caption competition though…
